Cedar Bark Mulch

Our cedar mulch comes from the bark of the cedar tree, an evergreen that grows abundantly in U.S. Department of Agriculture plant hardiness zones 7 through 9. In mulch form, cedar is either shredded or chipped. Shredded cedar mulch creates an airy, light layer over soil.

Unlike many other types of organic mulch, cedar mulch resists decay, so it takes a lot longer to decompose than hardwood or leaf mulches. This means it won't need to be replenished as frequently as hardwood or leaf mulch, either, saving time and money. It can also be a bit more colorful than other undyed wood mulches, adding a nice tan or reddish hue to the garden bed. The color varies depending on where the wood was harvested.
